Dapitan Literary Folio


The Flame, aside from serving as a stronghold in maintaining a reliable journalistic tradition of liberal and fearless reportage, annually celebrates the artistic and literary prowess of the Artlet community by inviting them to submit their works for Dapitan.

Dapitan is a literary folio made through the compilation of selected contributions from the Artlet community. It has kept vigil throughout the years of the Faculty’s existence in maintaining ablaze the Promethean fire of creative inspiration. This is part of the publication’s duty in honoring the altar of the giants, its family of literati predecessors upon whose shoulders the Flame rests.

Dapitan: Captured

Art by LEANNE VILOG

The theme of this year’s Dapitan is Captured. The folio will serve as a collection of narratives on the Artlet community’s experience during the recent pandemic— Covid-19. Captured can depict life during quarantine since people have been held captive in their own homes. However, Captured can also pertain to numerous meanings such as the very act of capturing moments using technology or simply being captured by the gripes of one’s environment and society.
